Toilet seat bass

It's a strange world we currently live in, so why not make it a little bit stranger and treat yourself to a bass modelled off a toilet seat? 

Mocked worldwide throughout the bass community for looking similar to a toilet seat, this is a beast of a bass. Putting the feelers out there to see if there's any interest in my musicman bongo 5 hs in carbon blue Pearl. I am only considering selling as I can't part with my 5514 lakland. My pictures are fairly terrible (will try to get better ones) so check Google images for a better representation of the colour! It's a lovely bass, comes with the original hardcase in used condition, straplocks and a spare white pearl pickguard. I have given the rear of the neck a light sanding (with wire very fine wire wool) to remove the gloss. I've done it neatly and if you wanted I'm sure you could buff it back to a gloss finish. It also has a homemade ramp fitted (with tape) which is clear acrylic however it cracked so I covered it with electrical tape to prevent it falling apart 🙃 There are some chips to the end of the headstock and a chip to the g string side of the body next to the neck.

I bust my nut on the g string... Hang on... The outer edge of the nut on the g string side has chipped off which doesn't affect its performance however I have ordered a replacement compensated nut in black which will be included if I haven't fitted it before sale. Everything works as it should. Currently strung with 45/100 slinkies with a heavier 135 b string for added tension! Plays great and has a very fast fretboard due to the 17.5mm spacing. I don't have a box to box so would prefer a collection or meet. Obviously given the current situation we will need to be sensible about it and follow the rules. 

Be safe and keep playing!

Can this be played whilst sitting down or standing?

I usually stand however sometimes I treat myself by sitting down

If there's a lot of interest you might have to hold some kind of competition to decide who gets the bass, I know I'd love to winnet

This bass is definitely not a piece of cra*p and entirely inappropriate for anyone to take the p*iss if you ask me.

Brilliant bass, I want it but don't need it!

Very cheap for that kind of sound quality but expensive for a toilet seat

This could be someone’s number one bass.
Or maybe number two.
